They had very jolly times but one little girl stopped because she wasn't able to come in from the country. Later another little boy and little girl stopped, the boy going to Hunt- lngton to work for the railroad company, and the little girl to Island City to keep house t'or one. All went merrily on for the rest of the year, but the next year the little circle was broken by one girl and two little boys, wno went away, trying to find a better school. Another little boy and girl did not return. but a little girl came from Fargo, North Dakota, to join the little hunch. The next year the little girl who went to find a better school, came back, finding out that the E. H. S. was the bestg but the boys did not return-one went to farming and the other to roaming. Two more girls joined the jolly circle. One was the Elgin girl who had been :attending school awaf' :ind had i'CllIl'i out that she did not have to leave Sonic to go to school: the other was at lttle girl who livrd in North Powder and hearing of our fine class came and joined it. Our only boy stopped ut thc end ofthe first term. All the friils' tfnrs forlfl rot hold him. A little later two little girls stopped school, one going with her folks to llill City. Kansas, to live and the other stopping on account of sickness. That left only five little girls to finish. 'l'lie next year, our last, we had only five, the one returning who stopped on account of sickness, and the other Secured dnrlniz the surmnfr, :i vicesltion as t:-richer of one The five remaining girls tried very lmvd to get a boy for their rise" hut when the hovs would sec the i-ni..-h they would refuse to joln, ",' 'th the exception of one. which l.:uirosc will succeed ln getting if si: keeps on, Lanrcsc liailey came from Iowa several years ago, going to North Powder, where she lived until she came to Elgin, in the fall of 1908. Laurose is liked by all who know her, she is very jolly, always ready to have some fun, or play a joke on somebody, Altho' she is full of fun, she is always ready with her lessons and the teachers always know she will give some kind of an answer. Mamie Clare Frances Pepper came from iowa when but a small child. She started in the primary grade here and went through the public school and high school, with the exception of one year at Pendleton and one year at Enterprise. She is our brightest pupil and is always present with her happy smile, teasing somebody or inquir- ing about something. She is very sedate and will make a model teacher. Hazel Smith came from Nebraska at an early age and settled in La Grande, where she lived several years, when she moved to Elgin and entered the fourth grade. She has been going here ever since, with the exception of one winter she spent in California. Haze-l is the quiet girl of the seniors. She is always ready to help anybody who needs it Lillian Morris came to Elgin from Fargo, North Dakota, in the fall of 1907. Altho' having lived here so short a time, it seems :is if she has always been with us. Lillian is the chubby one of the class: she is like the old saying: "Short and sweet and hard to beat." Nona Marie Austin came to Elgin from Utah in May, of 1898. entering the second grade. She has been going here ever since. with the exception of one term spent at the Weston Normal. Nona is the lankey one of the seniors and always very quiet. SENIOR CLASS SONG 'She first senior class meets here once again, The five faithful maidens of nineteen hundred and ten And tho' high school days are now nearly gone- We like to think oier the pleasures we've known. And long may our fond hearts recall with great cheer. The feelings which bound us in sweet friendship here. And tho' with no medals we can honor you We've tried to be faithful and loyal and true, And if we have not always been in the right The chief interest at heart was the purple and white. But when we have launched in the world's sea we'll try To gain reverence and fame for you, Elgin High. When time for parting comes, we must confess We will always be proud of our dear E. H. S. And when Father Time goes fleeting fast We will think of the schoolmates we loved in the past. So now our real message to you we will tell And bid teachers and scholars a fond farewell. -E. L.

As it happened it was exactly twenty years since our class assembled together in the old school room for the last time. As my thoughts wander, the first one of my class mates that entered my vision was Nona Austin. Tonight I seemed to see Nona sitting by an open fire place: she was reading to a middle aged gentleman who had very light hair, and it dawned on me that this gentleman was no other than Roy Hardy. I knew Roy very well in my school days and I was very glad to know that he was Nona had decided to spend the remainder of their lives together. Next in my dream I beheld Clare Pepper. In the old school days Nona and Clare were always together, and tonight it seemed quite natural for Clare to be the next one to come into my mind. Nona had told her several times that she ought to be a foreign missionary and it seemed as though she had followed her advice, for tonight I could see her standing in a pulpit, and in front of her sat a lot of heathens, who looked as though they were very much interested. Now something very strange appeared to me. In my school days I never once thought but what Lillian Morris would be the first of our class to be married: but tonight I could see her sitting alone on a veranda, softly humming a song to herself. At her feet lay a beautiful Scotch collie, and by her side sat a proud parrot, which was saying: "Don, where art thou?" Lillian was the very picture of happiness. and really she looked very sedate as she sat there, dressed in her white wrapper, Now Laurose Bailey's smiling face came into my vision. Laurose had always been quite a complex problem and tonight I could not quite work out what Laurose's occupation was. I seemed to see her walking down a broad street, and by her side was a hearty gentleman, and if I judged from the loving glances she gave him, he was her husband. . ' Last of my class mates was Hazel Smith. Mr. Bailey always prophesied that Hazel would be the most successful one of our class and it seemed as though he had prophesied rightly, for I could see her in the broad streets of London and in her hand was a music roll, which told me that she was studying music, as she had always told her class mates she hoped to do. Then I could hear Miss Greene playing: "What's the use of Dreaming?" And there my pipe went out, Clare Pepper, '10 CLASS ODE Now the five seniors gay Start upon life's rugged way, Leaving behind them school mates d-ar To be kept in memory year by year: And when the time comes for them to part Sorrow will linger in each loving heart.

HISTORY OF CLASS 1911 It was in the fall of 1907 that 18 happy, free fron cire youngsters bounded into the orlice of Prof. Rinehart, saying that thav were ready to be admitt.ed as Freshmen into the E. H. S. It did seem hard for Mr. Rinehart to letall of those children into the H. S. but when they showed such astonishingly good marks, he willingly let the-in enter and so they were registered, some to go on perhaps to finish, some to drop by the wayside. The way the freslvnen studied was known from their remarkable good grades. Miss Pitman thought they were the most studious hunch she had -ver seen. But bye and bye they became delinquent with their studies. Some might inquire for the reason, a reason thev certainly did have: That was foot hall. It may sound small but it sweoily is, was and ever shall be "Great." We had a fine team in the H. S All the freshmen boys held strong positions. Ever since, freshmen boys have held prin- cipal parts in the football team. One by one our class was dwindling down until only half as large as at 'he beginning, So the freshmen year ended with a picnic at the home of one of the class mates who lived in the country. as well as a teacher, he at once gained the respect and friendship of every member of the class. There were nine in the class at the beginning of the Sophomore year- four boys and five girls. The year vias not so very eventful, save for the practical jokes of some jolly mem bei of the class played upon some un- suspecting friends or some of the funny cartoons drawn by Jay Stevenson, the artist of the class. One of the most pleasant events was the trip to La Grande to view Sliakespeafs plav, "The Merchant of Venice," as produced bv Chas. B. Hanford dz tio. We had just finished reading Clie play in English class and our estimahle English teacher, Miss Pitman, accompained us as chap- GFODP. The ending of our Sophomore year was that never to be forgotton trip to Rock Wall, where we spent the dav climbing over the hig rocks and boulders and enjoying the swell spread. It was the beginning of the school year 1909 that Mable Arnold, Overton Scott, Montia Witty, Lottie Tuttle and Hetta Spencer signed up as Juniors. .lust before Christmas Moutia quit because he got an attack of the wandering fever and he has been roaming about ever since. Overton quit after New Years and went to work on a farm. The Junior class is now comprised of girls who work together and will be the Seniors of the next year. :elling some of his funny jokes and letting us know he was a good fellow H. K. S.

CHRISTMAS ONE HUNDRED YEARS HENCE On Christman Eve, in the year nineteen hundred nine, in the little town of Elgin, I crawled sleeplly to bed, and was soon soundly wrapped In slumber, never to awake, it was though by many. It was one cold Christmas Eve one hundred years from the time I had fallen into my deep slumber that I awoke. I was surrounded by many happy beings. They all seemed unaware of my presence and when I began to stir ilt had a tendency to frighten them, and all ran away and leI't me. I lay there and waited, what seemed to me many years, but in reality was only a few minutes, when one of the enchanted being slowly creeping started toward the place where I lay. At last he reached me and sat there a while, eyeing me. Then. as If a sudden thot had struck him. he nut out a soft, velvetv hand and stroked me gently on the cheek. At this time I could not keep from moving, for my heart was filled with joy at Iinding something that would not he afraid of me. When he began to talk I asked him. "what he was." He answered that he was one of the inhabitants of America, llvlng In the city of Elgin. which he said had a popula- tlon of one mllllon, Then I began to notice him and saw that he was blessed wit ha pair of wings. which I had ollten wished for. I then asked him what he meant by referring to my days. He said he ineant the time a. hundred years beforeg it was now Christmas Eve of the year 2U09. I then asked what everbady was so happy about. Ho answered that everybody was happey every day. but today they were extra happy on account of it being Christmas. I thot that I had been wandering around upon our globe and had accidently stumbled off into a world of fairies one hundred years ahead of ours. But he assured me that I was wrong. The next morning when I awoke the sun was Shining in upon my face and I heard these people talking of gifts they had received. My first thot was of the happy times I had had when Christmas came before, and I asked them who brot their Christmas gifts. The answer came in one low, sweet tone from one troat, "Santa Claus." At last I thought I would get up. They told me I was too old. but in spite of their protestations I hopped nimbly out of bed, deter mined to explore the world about me. 'The streets were paved,and I looked up into the sky and saw many big birds which the fairy prin- ces told me were a.eroplanes. This sight brot the thot to my mind and I asked how Santy traveled now. They told me he had the same tcam of reindeers and the same old sled of old. This surprised me and I wanted to know why Santa Claus had not progressed in the way of transportation as well as the others. They answered that he suited the people best the way he had always been. , After we had breakfast we went out and explored the city of Elgin and I saw many inventions, which I had never dreamed of be- fore, and which are too numerous to mention. My enjoyable compan- ions told me, with glad heart that the U. S. was like it used to be. ahead of the other nations in l11OSt everything. After returning to our home we had some wood goose. plum pudding, and many other things that would make your mouth water. if mentioned. so I will not grieve you by telling of them. The afternoon was spent talking of old times. So passed the merry Christmas of 2009. B. R.. '12. Z- R 3 K '-R , x ,fr W-in -'V I "' W 'Q' 2 N if G it 4 'f'fi7iv" iii gr!

Sekrzfzxrin unit Snhaizmeisierin, ZEIBTB fnillizm Cilmurris The idea of having a German club first entered our heads that evening when we with trembling knees went up to see llliss Greene to take German exams-and stayed to eat Welsh Raraebit and study the phschyology of hypnotism. Our first meeting was held at Haze. Smiths, where we decided upon "Die 'Lusttigen Deutschenu as a name and HIIIIIHGI' Lustig Voran' as our motto, with red. black and white the colors of the German Hag, as our colors. Our meetings tool place after school and we have had many an enjoyable time gathered at some L. D's home, playing German games, or listening to Miss Greene read German stories wi-th those brilliant German jokes, that we, like true "Dutchmen," would forget to laugh at until the next day. it We didn't attempt much in a social way, the German party being the only affair of tha-t character. lt was held at the Knights of Pythias hall the last of January. The program, in German, was given by the club members, which we hope our guests enjoyed. This was Followed by playing German games, and later a "German" supper, which didn't differ so very much from our American feed, for eating is the same the world over. "Aber wir hat Wiener wursts und Deut sche Kucheu und Koffee, und so weiterf' With the coming of spring, annual board meetings, commence- ment, etc, the German club was disorganized. Here's wishing the club of next year as pleasant times as we have enjoyed. m L. B. 'l0. i .:j.k vw ,. . H +o-I . -so-'.,., .--Q.-W-..

Librarian- The High School Glee Club was organized during the second week of school under the direc-tion of Miss Greene and included in its membership all high school girls who wished to join, beside: members from the teaching corps and grammer rooms. Miss Greene took quite a task in attempting to d1'i1l a crowd of girls, the ma-- jority of whom had had 110 previous training, but you have only to hear our girls sine' to know how ably she managed. The girls fur- iiished entertainment for a number of lodge and school affairs this winter and have had many enjoyable times "amusing" the public. Lulu Hackett. The "Dream," a spectacular entertainment given the 19th dgiy of February, under the auspices of the Glee Club and the direction of Mrs. Roijker, of the Chicago Art School, was a decided success and netted the club a neat sum of money. The popular pa 1 of thc "Dream" were the different choruses by the Glee Club and me pan- tomine "The Bache1or's Dream," which completed the performance. This organization was held together througout the entire school year and has made considerable progress. We hope they may all be together again as strong as ever. fi 1 5 LX.

I 'Q , V W S5 L-T The foot hall situation in Elgin High School has been, to put it mildly, interesting. Every game played during the past season was liercely tought, while the most exciting contests came over games that were never played. During the foot ball season, however, excitement is th e rule everywhere among high school. From the lirst of September till after Thanksgiving, the balls of the school building frequently echoed to the songs and yells of enthusiastic foot hall fans The team worked hard on the practice-tield while the rooters enthused in-doors. Then came the game with La Gra ndel The inhabitants of the city who were np earlv enough, stared with surprise at a gay wagon-load of girls. all wearing little purple and white hats, carrying pennants, and yelling as ATHLETICS FOOT BALL LINE-UP Overton Scott. .. ....

The rooters were on their way to show what good they could do bv yelling to encourage the players. A good Elgin delegation met. in the grand stand when the game was called, and their rooting was sutlicient to let the La Grande people know of their presence. The Game was thrilling from start to linish and ended with a score of 0 to0. The next game was played against Cove on our home territory. A got d deal of scrapping livened up this contest which resulted in a score of 10 In 6 in favor ofthe visiting team. Our boys next went to Enterprise to try their luck. Here the result was the same as at La Grande. This made up the tale of Elgin's foot, ball season of 1909. PHYSICAL CULTURE CLUB The Physical Cluture Club includes all that all girls have eve' attempted along athletic lines. Perhaps the work is 11ot considered so very "athletical" atlter all, by the boys, especially by those who always would peak in the door on "physical torture" night to watcl the fun. And even though some of us were dreadfully stupid in catching on to the new steps we have gained a. great deal oi' recre- ation and pleasure from our meetings. The club was organized during the first of the school year with Miss Greene as director. lt was decided to xneet cn lllondays and :Rv ,,y52?5x t N Ae ll F jot: ,W 9 T 6 fy it sf f 1 w'N - , or rf, Elf .

The mos-t interesting features of the club work are the fancy marching and the Indian Club swinging, but both will take mor' practice than a year to make perfect.

B eulah Rhodes For weeks before the play was given you would hear the gentle voices of the different members in every nook and corner rehearsing their parts in a most dramatic tone of voice. Almost every night they would bring Professor out in the blustery weather. This took place for a period of some five weeks, and great expectations were aroused, and not only the school but loyal citizens of the town "sat up and took notice" to such extent that when the night arrived the largest house up to that time greeted the play troupe. lt was December 22d and the comedy drama "BRAC" presented by the High School Theatrical "Troupe" was produced i11 what pioved to be a most interesting andpleasing performance. The curtair arose at 8:30 p. m. The principal feature of the first act was Brac eating ubandanas. The second act was considered the best of the entire play. Two old maids were considered the best of the act. The peculiar cos- tumes of the two old maids caused a loud smile to pass over thr audience. Clarisa Avery's exclamation of "Oh, Ransom! I shall pre- spire! I know I shall!" brought down the house. In the third act the way in which Anna Blake exclaimed, "I have tested your love too long." and turned John Perkins down wart received with great applause. Laurose Bailey as leading lady and Roy Frashier as leading man delivered their parts exceptionally well. lt was said by thosf present that "BRAC" ls one of the best plays ever given in Elgin.

Club is the mystery of the Elgin High School. Ono clear October evening the curiosity of several of the high school l:oys was aroused by seeing a band of girls, in High School caps, inarchill single nie down the street with suppressed giggles. On inquiring the only answer they could gain as to the meaning oi such a procession was, UO. they are only the B. B's," which ol' course enlightened them greatly. If they could only have seen thee? same girls a few minutes later as they lounged in the middle of the fioor around a huge hish of pop corn at Hazel SmDth's, and heard the deep f??J secrets they might have been wiser. Perhaps somf people remember the dignified names with which, at the Valentin party, they attempted to explain the meaning of B. B. Here are some of the shining examples: Beautiful Bunch, Boy Bouncers, Busy Bees, Bed 'Bugs, Baby Buntings, Broncho Busters, Bon Ton Beauties, Blessed Bunch, Babbling Babies, Bouncing Beauties, Black Beau- ties. The club membe1's alone know how to appreciate these noble attempts. In the middle of January a "Stag" party was given at the home of Lillian Morris in honor of the .lunior girls, with Miss Greene as chaperone. The program consisted of wading thzough snow deep enough to allow one to believe she was- about 'to discover the North Pole. Bushels of fun oyster soup, roasted peanuts, and the next day a bunch of rather pale looking girls. . During the winter the members met at their different 'ies to transact business. The following are some oi the rules made an this meeting: J-Always march in designated order. 2-Always wear hair braided down back and high school caps. 3-Never under any consideration forget the pass word. 4- Pay membership fee of S per month. 5-Always address club members under club name under pen- alty of lc. 6-Don't tell any club secrets, to Juniors under death penalty The big public event of the club was the Valentine Party at Larouse Bailey's at which the .lunion Class, ll. H. Faculty, and sev- eral town boys were present. In the "proposal stunt" the boys proved that they were game and Elgin girls need never fear that they will have to wait for "Leap Year" to win a heart and home. Only a few weeks more and the B. B's, will be but a me iory to all. but the five who compose it. To them it will always bring a smile. followed by a wish that they may some day have another meeting: -to laugh over the fun they have had and ask one another, "O don'i you remember'-There was Jennie who wanted a diamond ring, and Kitty. such a funny curious little thing. Then dear Poppy so tall and slender. And gentle Peggy so kind and tender. And Babe al ways the "Last" of our bunch. Now listen, can't you hear her saj' "Oh Gee, kids, ain't it fun to be a B.

We know that like all other first efforts, there must be mistakes in it., all of which we hope you will kindly overlook, remembering that the material as well as the work has been gathered by school grlsg girls with high ideals but not of sufficient breadth and experience to stay clear of all errors In work of this character where something has to be said it may be at times, unintentionally, there may work in things which are not alltogether agreeable, but in this case we beg leave to assure you that we have made no intentional aim at any one person with a view of hunting his feelings. Our difficulties have been too numerous to mention and yet wr flatter ourselves that nothing good ever comes into this world except it brings with it an amount of trouble equal to the good. To be specific, however, the question as to who should publish the annua came first, the resignation of our business manager second, and the general misunderstanding growing out of these two momentous difli- culties together with a lack of knowledge of t.he purpose and scope of the annual might be mentioned as the third. Taking all of this at once it nearly put a stop to our work. Too much cannot be said in praise of our strongest and best business manager, who without ouestion or quibble gave us their financial support. We feel that tr them, along with our helpful school mates, we are especially indebted. I X W . w 1 4 5275 1 QW Q g et K m f ' Q xx fifxbm ff W' m 2. 4155 if ffngfu' ,Sly M f 2 5 QQ?
